As many of you may (or may not) know, I am the president of NTES (Northern Technologist and Engineering Society) in the North.

Our belief is that those that are schooled in the North will end up staying in the north to live and work.
Often at different talks that I present I am asked, “Why Engineering? What does it have to do with Innovation?”
